  17. 17. What’s So Special about the GS1-Databar ? It is not just a Barcode – It’s the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of barcodes Standard Databar 14 carries more data but is 50% smaller than Ean13 Even smaller footprints & shapes available for smaller item marking Backward compatibility (H/W & S/W) with all current UPC-A, and EAN codes Can carry GS1-128 application identifiers (optimised for common combinations) RSS (Reduced Space Symbology) options to carry much more data (2d reader)
  18. 18. GS1 Databar DataBar  Reduced Footprint – Planned successor to GTIN - 8,12,13,14 – Omnidirectional Scanning – Optimised for POS Scanning
  19. 19. GS1 Databar GS1-128 Composite Symbology™ – It uses a GS1-128 barcode as linear component: – Linear 48 alphanumeric capacity, incl. AI’s – The CC-C (PDF417) can be variable length (according to length of linear symbol) – Possible 2D Components: CC-A, CC-B, CC-C – Unique GS1 Identifier – Not Omnidirectional – *Laser/CCD Scanner for Linear – *Requires 2d reader for CC
  20. 20. What does this mean for me ? 6. Ability to maintain ‘live’ stock levels and view current stock including; 1. All normal functionality is preserved 2. Ability to read both prices and weights a) Weights a) Expiry Dates b) Suppliers c) Batch Codes 3. Ability to read expiry dates and prevent sale of expired items or offer automated discounts 5. Ability to read and record Supplier Batch Codes (prevent sale of recalled items ?) 4. Use a True GTIN – May avoid need to label variable weight items for individual customers
